    Description

    Chateau Lafleur 1983
    Pomerol
    2wasl, 1wisl, 3sdc
    Bottle (3)
    "Deep ruby-colored with noteworthy amber at the edge, this is the only Lafleur from a very fine year that has reached full maturity, at least from the last two decades. I have had this wine from both regular bottle and magnum, and it is an example of Lafleur at its kinkiest and most exotic. The soaring nose of jammy kirsch, plum, licorice, and Asian spices is superb. Soft, round, plump, medium to full-bodied flavors coat the palate with considerable glycerin and sweet tannin." (93pts, Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book, 3rd Ed., Jan 1998)

    "Full mature, yet still in far better condition than most 1983 Pomerols, Lafleur’s 1983 has a medium ruby color with considerable pink at the edge. A very exotic, almost kinky nose of Asian spice, licorice, truffle, and jammy kirsch is followed by a medium to full-bodied, plum, fleshy wine with sweet tannin, and low acidity in a very evolved style. Certainly among the very good vintages of Lafleur over the last 20 years, this is the most evolved and drinkable." (93 pts. Robert Parker, Bordeaux Book 4th Ed., Jan. 2003)
